One day, you talked to your friends about the new automatic watch that you saw on a watch store and they laughed at you. One said, ‘why do you need watches when you have smartphones?’ This notion seems to be quite common nowadays and I just feel sad inside whenever I hear this.
You see, although smartphones are quite practical and useful, there are some downsides to owning one. Not only does it distract you from doing the things that you need to do but it is also not convenient as a device that can tell the time.
Also, the people that say that you no longer need wristwatches because smartphones are already here are also the same people that are questioning the value of smartphones in terms of a person’s productivity, among many other things.
In today’s article, I will go over some exclusive benefits you can get by wearing a wristwatch.
A person who is seen wearing a wristwatch instantly tells other people that they value their time (and others’). That’s right, it is scientifically proven that people who are wearing watches are punctual, organized, and responsible individuals.
Now, you might think that that is bollocks, but that is actually not the case. Wear a wristwatch for a month and you will psychologically receive the benefits without ever having to try so hard.
One of the best things that can happen to you is if your great grandfather or your dad gives you their own timepieces.
Watches can be great heirlooms simply because they are basically built to last. They are built with components that, given proper care, should last for decades.
In fact, a friend of mine got an heirloom watch from his grandfather who was a war veteran. Though the watch is not in pristine condition, what he holds on his wrist is something that holds a piece of history.
There is a notion that boys use smartphones and men wear wristwatches and that cannot be further from the truth.
Wearing any wristwatch instantly improves your appearance. Just look at people who are not wearing one and you will know what I am talking about.
Dress watches, when paired with a formal suit, will look really great on a man. In fact, a watch is the only accessory that is perfectly acceptable for a man to wear, so why wouldn’t you?
Assuming that you do not have anyone to pass your watch onto, do not worry. You can still spend a lot of money buying luxury watches since they can be great investments as well.
Be on the lookout for discontinued models as they are almost always guaranteed to appreciate in price after a few years.
I also encourage you to go to different watch forums so that you will know which watches are worth investing money to and which ones are just not worth it.
